WebIDE could not start. Orion executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library

Former Member


Yesterday I downloaded latest version of WebIDE ( non-productive version ) 1.45.3 and followed the instructions . But when I double clicked orion.exe, I am getting below error and WebIDE is not getting started.

After extracting, below is the directory structure.

Not sure what is the reason.

I have the exact same error. The folder structure in my case is the same, that is the unzipping process has not put an extra folder into the path.

This is my Java version info

java version "1.8.0_40" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_40-b25) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.40-b25, mixed mode)

I'm trying to install the 64bit version on windows 7

I'm surprised that this question was posted just 4 hours before my search. I note that the Personal Web IDE was updated on the 15/12, just a few days ago.....

Hi Srini,

I'm happy to share that a few days ago a new tag was added to SAP Community - "SAP Web IDE, Personal Edition".

I'd appreciate if you add this tag to your question. This helps developers in the community to share information easily.

Best regards,

The productive version is only for customers which have valid sap cloud accounts. There should not be any difference between the 2 versions under the hood.

But I would expect the error message to say so. Instead of "Access Denied". I could not find any docs to explain to activate the version.

can the non-productive version be used for prototype presentation in the workplace. before the company decides to commit to it?
